We’d like to say a huge thank you and acknowledge the generous support of SLX Hire & Events who have supported the production of Treasure Island.
SLX offered a large quantity of additional lighting equipment for the production with a hire value of £14,000. Marcus Bartlett, a Technical Manager at Exeter Northcott said:
‘We’re really proud of production values of Treasure Island and it’s fantastic to see the audience responding so well to the effects we’ve been able to achieve.’
SLX started from the back dock of the Exeter Northcott in the 70s when a friendship was born between Maurice Marshall MBE and David Whitehead. Maurice was Chief Electrician at the time and David, his Deputy. The two friends took a decision in November 1979 to become business partners. Maurice pursued a dual career as a partner in SLX and also as chief electrician at the Northcott Theatre in Exeter, where he launched the careers of a number of the country’s top stage lighting designers and technicians. His services to drama and his commitment to training in theatre resulted in him being awarded an MBE
